OK, I have been seeing many people including clients that are using products that I really do not care for and dislike using. Mostly because they are a pain in the ass to use, are outdated, don’t work well, are expensive, or will help them lose money. And if you really hit the jackpot, some of these products all of the aforementioned things.
I just happened to pick the names out that I see most bandied about as the greatest thing since sliced white bread and the ones that my clients seem to have the most trouble with and that ones that I hate to work on these days. The people that say they are great is because they usually have a vested interest or they don’t know any better. 🙂 But I am willing to be convinced otherwise. But, it is going to take a lot, and I do mean A LOT of convincing.
This is just my little old humble opinion from having knocked around the internet for going on two decades now. Wow, how is that possible? LOL
Here is the long and short of it.
What has happened is that WordPress has taken over at THE code to build profitable Websites with these days.
Groupon got started on WordPress. It is now over a 5 billion dollar a year company.
Joomla and Drupal became obsolete when WordPress came around. Do not let anyone tell you otherwise. So therefore, most things that have anything to do with them have the same shortfalls.
